Even after her death… it’s still there.
Last year when Jessica Pittman passed through his hometown of Gulfport, Mississippi, she couldn’t help but notice an elderly person standing near the parked car beside the road, reports Rus.Media.
Intrigued, Jessica stopped beside a man who seemed to have something to sell.
He introduced himself as Kenneth Smith. He was there with his wife Helen.
They sold timber to pay for the hospital bills of Helen.
A few years ago his wife was diagnosed with lung cancer.
The couple could not afford to pay for all the expensive medicines and doctors visits, so Kenneth started to harvest timber for picnics, sapakova it in small bags and sold.
He asked for $ 5 per bag.
After a year, Jessica saw Kenneth standing in the same corner. But this time he was alone.
His beloved wife, Helen, died.
Desolate and in debt, Kenneth again sold wood next to the road, trying to pay the remaining hospital bills of his late wife.
Kenneth had no choice but to stand, hoping to sell it to random drivers.
Jessica decided that she needed to do something. So she posted this story on his Facebook page to find out who can help the Kenneth.
But neither Kenneth nor Jessica was not prepared for what will happen in the coming days!
Message To Jessica:
“If you need wood for the fire, please come to this 80-year-old man. His name is Kenneth. You will be able to find it on the corner of Carl leggett and west Taylor Rd. in Gulfport. He’s there every day for hours! Only $ 5 per bag.
Here is his story: a year ago, he sold wood with his lovely wife Helen, to pay the bills for visiting doctors and buying medicines.
This year he is one.
He said that his wife, Helen, lost his battle with cancer a few weeks ago, but it’s still there, trying to pay the remaining part of the bill.
My heart sinks every time I see it. He waves to every car that drives past!
Friday on the street there passed a funeral procession. And he stood there, like, with your straw hat directly to the heart.
I will not be able to buy anything! In any case… you Need only 5 $ from each of us to help Kenneth.
I don’t know the size of its accounts, but told me that he and his wife spent all their savings to cover bills for the last several years of treatment, and he’s barely making ends meet”.
People from different corners of the world came together to help her husband. Soon strangers began to come to Gulfport to buy firewood in Kenneth.
Now they helped him to collect 100 000$ in a week! Isn’t it strange?
Although the health care system, which impoverishes the people, which is clearly unreasonable, we want to emphasize the positive side of this story. Together we can do more!
